Monday Week 4 Term 1 – 17th of February
This is our last week of reading our shared text ‘The Tiny Seed’. Today when I read the story I left out some of the words at end of sentences or within sentences. The children were able to pick up on the words being left out and say them aloud as a group as I read the story. This was amazing to see as we have now read the story 7 times together. Watching the progress over time from the first time we have read it to now when the children are able to follow the story and know what is coming next.
We also read our words for the 3 weeks that align with the story and or are high frequency words. This word list is in the children’s word book in their black bag. Every 3 weeks the children will get a new list of words. It has 10 words in there. Please support your child to read these words at home. There is some space next to the word list where they can have a go at writing these words. Under the word list there is the 3 sounds we have covered over weeks 2-4. They are put in here so you know what sounds we have covered but also so you can engage with these sounds at home.
For writer’s workshop today the children were encouraged to use the word ‘and’ in their writing. Some children wrote their own sentences, some had a go at writing the word and on their page and some children had sentences modelled for them. Within this time we are able to individually focus with each child on where they are at with their writing and support this. When we are focusing on writing in sentences we point out the use of capital and lower case letters and the use of full stops. The children then keep their work in their writer’s workshop folder (which is the folder with the cloud on it).
Today for prayer we sung ‘One Faith, One Hope, One Love’ in preparation for Ash Wednesday next week. The children then shared their own prayers.
- Catharen- Dear God, Thank you for everyone which are nice
- Alexia- Dear God, thank you for all the schools across the land and all the land and all the teachers
- Oliver- Dear God, I love the people, the plants and the Holy Spirit amen,
- Nick- Dear God, I thank you for all the teachers and all the caring and all the love, amen
- Mikayla- Dear God, thank you for the teachers and our school
- Charlee- Dear God thank you for the school
Sport and Music
R/1JM head off to Sport and Music on a Monday and R/1FD stay in the room and then have sport.
Recapping the sound of the Week
Whilst R/1FD were at sports R/1JM worked on a recap of this weeks sound ‘a’. We looked at the correct letter formation of a capital and lower case letter ‘Aa’ and then drew some things that we know that start with the letter ‘a’ before labelling them.
Keeping Safe Curriculum
Following on from our trust networks last week this week we talked about who safe people are within our community and how they can help us. We made a list together;
- Nick- Secruity guard because they have a uniform on
- Charlee- Police because they help you when you are in trouble
- Richard- Ambulance will come and help you if you hurt your self
The children then drew a picture of safe people that can help us.
